Regular size = 48 grams (1.69 ounces), approximately 24 tsp (½ cup), the size of a standard spice jar.
People are SO WRONG about chili powder it boggles the mind. Consider all of this a protip:
- Chili powder is not a pure ground chili or blend of chilis.
- Yeah sometimes ground chili is labeled “chili powder” (which totally makes sense) – but in the USA, when you see a product called “Chili Powder” it is almost always a spice blend.
- There are many variations, but chili powder usually has cayenne, paprika, cumin, and oregano.
Chili powder is basically “Mexican seasoning”, spices that are common to many Mexican dishes and the blend has since become incorporated into American cuisine, obviously particularly that of the south and southwest. My chili powder is an aromatic, balanced blend to provide moderate heat surrounded by warm herbaceous flavors, excellent in any kind of stew, roast, or fried food – goes particularly well with red meat, seafood, and earthy vegetables.
PS: It is truly ridiculous how often recipes call for chili powder AND cayenne, paprika, cumin, and oregano. Think about this.
